About The Author

Jennifer Claessan was born in Reading, Berkshire, in England so, of course, grew up a bookworm. She studied literature and theatre at the University of Sheffield, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Canterbury Christ Church University, and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. A teacher and theatre maker, Jennifer loves stories, especially for young people, whether on stage or page. Jennifer currently works in the West End, taking children to the theatre and lives in the East End with her partner, a Dutch toymaker, and their baby daughter. She loves reading, travel, and ice cream. You can find her on her yellow bike or in a red velvet seat in the stalls, applauding.
